Fifty-something Lillian Cage keeps house and meticulously irons her husband's shirts while humming the theme from "Rawhide" and enjoying a secret crush on the teenager who daily bags her groceries. When a robber shoots down the boy before her eyes, Mrs. Cage grabs the gun and turns it on the person she deems responsible, then carries the weapon to the police station in her straw hat to try to explain, in her own way, how it all happened.
Did You Know?
I confess to the murder of Phyllis Dean. I confess to the murder of Phyllis Dean! I grabbed the gun, I aimed it, I shot her through the head! I killed the woman, period. I didn't like her very much.
